Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hello! I'm looking for someone who is open minded and enjoys
learning about the world and different cultures. If I could find a
job that paid me to travel and explore other countries I would do
it in an instant. I have a dark and often teasing (think Irish)
sense of humor so the guy I'm looking for should probably not get
offended easily, it would be great if he could dish it back, I get
such a kick out of it. I love a good sense of wit and clever
conversation. I'm passionate about the things and people I love,
but all in all I'm a fairly practical person (though I do enjoy my
moments of spontaneity). I guess I'm looking for someone who can
appreciate all the different things out there in life, I love being
outdoors and I would love if I could find someone who will
encourage me to explore nature more but it's also nice to be with
someone who cleans up pretty decently. I appreciate a man who can
challenge me to be better (lol, whether I may appreciate it in the
moment or not).
I speak French and I can flub my way around with Spanish. I'm
fascinated by other languages and I want to tackle German and
Chinese at some point in time. I also enjoy the English language
and if you 'seen something' on tv recently, think that prepositions
are optional or you are going to type a message while using strange
abbreviations, we're probably not meant for each other. I guess I'm
old fashioned that way.
To relieve stress I workout or I do yoga. When working for lawyers
while also writing term papers on International Political
Economics, stress relief/movement becomes a necessity. I'd love to
do a triathlon some day if my stupid knees don't get to me
first....or my bicycle doesn't break down (it's really not a very
good bicycle). I really enjoy being outdoors, especially in the
summer. Camping, festivals, beaches, dancing, baseball, you name
it, I'm there. I love going to shows at Millennium Park and Summer
Dance in Grant Park. On days when its warm enough you can find me
on one of Chicago's many beaches although I've been in a decades
long standoff with the sun since I have crazy fair skin but I
refuse to be in the shade. I will hold strong. I'm a big Sox fan so
if you're going to post those cubs jersey pics (you guys know the
ones I mean) be ready for a couple of jibes. If you don't live in
the Chicago land area and you have more than a decade on me, please
just move along. I work downtown in the Loop and attend class up
north so I'm in Chicago a large part of my week.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
School and work! Currently studying International Studies with a
focus in Political Economics.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Dancing!! Love it and if it's any type of Latin dance then I have
it down, including tango.
Chicago driving. Seriously. If you find yourself in front of me on
the road and are unsure of what to do and stop in the middle of the
intersection because there is construction fixing pot holes, you
can be sure I'm going to yell explecitives at you.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
my height, I'm 6 ft tall and the blue eyes I suppose. It's the
German heritage thing.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
fave book: Catch 22 is my favorite novel but some of my favorite
authors are Jane Austen and Gabriel García Márquez
Movie: Bringing up Baby or really any comedy with Cary Grant, Show:
True Blood, Game of Thrones, Downton Abby and Father Ted
Music: Almost everything. I hate pop country but Patsy Cline is a
classic. I love classic rock, blues, jazz, classical, traditional
latin music, reggae. Not that big on many current things though
besides The Black Keys and stuff that comes out of New Orleans. Ok,
also started listening to XRT, it has some good stuff. I won't get
your reference to any super current pop music however, rap or hip
hop. This also means those new, obscure Indie rock bands with
ridiculous names. I won't judge you for liking/listening to them,
but you better hell as not judge me for not having any clue who
Won't lie, I despise anything that is or might be mistaken for
techno. Food: Thai is my favorite but I'll try almost anything
except bugs. The one exception to that is escargot drenched in
garlic and butter. I tried chicken feet once at a dim sum place in
China Town....at least I can say I tried it!
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Please see above. Although I could probably survive without TV or
movies. Friends are a major thing that also keep me going.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
At the moment? my future
And getting stranded on desert islands.
Possibly learning Krav Maga.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Listening to some music somewhere with a drink in my hand...or now
that I'm 30 it's entirely possible that I'm sleeping.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Hahahahaha! This is the most ridiculous prompt. No way I'm going to
tell you until I get to know you.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
There are so many reasons, but let me stop you with some reasons
- YOUR MESSAGE IS TWO SENTENCES OR LESS. This is an email exchange,
not an in person conversation.
- If I can't tell what you look like because you posted artsy pics.
Oh, a picture of your blurry reflection/shadow. That's great! Save
it for Facebook.
- If you think it's acceptable to end something with a woman by
randomly stopping all communication. Just let me know so I know and
we can all get on with our lives and no one is sitting there
- If you are going to need me to open that pickle jar for you
because it's just too difficult.
- If you own a dog that could be described as a Toy
Somethingorother. Don't kid yourself. It's a rat.
- And after the worst date ever I find I have to add this in; I'm
really not interested in a polyamorous relationship. Seriously,
dude. I don’t even know how to respond to that business except
Who are you looking for?
